Chicago Blackhawks forward Drake Caggiula will have a hearing with the NHL’s Department of Player Safety on Sunday for an illegal check to the head of Edmonton Oilers’ forward Tyler Ennis.
The hit – a clear shoulder to the chin – came 7:41 into the second period of Saturday’s game, with the Blackhawks leading 5-2.
No penalty was called on the hit by referees Brad Meier and Francois St. Laurent. Ennis was given a minor penalty for delay of game for shooting the puck over the glass.
The Oilers winger left the game for evaluation, but later returned in the third period.
